A friend's parents have an old compaq presario 9546 that they want to upgrade(only want to use it for email and junk). I checked the specs and saw that it uses SIMMS in pairs. I checked around to see if I can buy some ram for this clunker and saw that there are name brand like kingston and crucial that make ram specifically for this machine. But the price is kinda high. I was wondering if you can use generic ram for this thing? Any comments would be great.
